president obama to know, i feel like our country is divided. we need to come together as one. i get to talk to kids. the lady, the mother of that evil kid that shot those kids should have had enough common sense to think, hey, you know what i should be a responsible gun owner and take these guns and lock them out. out of the house and what i want people to remember is our flag is made out of the blood of patriots, do not give up your rights because when you give up your rights you're going to fight with blood to get the rights back. and that second amendment has given us every other amendment and as a sportsman, as a cop, guns are not the problem. we need to become a better country, need to become better parents and responsible. if we're responsible
makeup of the country? >> i know barack obama. i trust him. i know that our president has -- not only house, but will continue to promote the cabinet that looks like america, that is balanced gender-wise, that is reflective of the changing face of america. i have no doubt in my mind that when it is all said and done that will be the case. this is the guy who signed the lilly ledbetter act and has stood not just for equal pay for women, but has always stood for the notion that when you open up the door for one of was, you open up the door for all of us i expect -- for all of us. i expect to see that reflected in his cabinet. >> has the white house or any administration circuit -- started to approach you about becoming a member of the cabinet? >> like the governor question, a question that has been asked and answered in the past, i will just say that as i said yesterday, i expect to be in washington quite frequently over the next few months with my work for the u.s. conference of mayors and the issues i have mentioned. i do not care toyesterday commey future job. i am focused on the job
. romney attacked obama is deferred action policy that allows some young undocumented people to remain in the country temporarily, saying a more permanent solution was needed. romney was accused during the appearance of avoiding specific details about a possible permanent solution and asked to respond with a yes or no on whether he would deport undocumented youth. >> were not going to round up people around the country and deport them. i said during my primary campaign, time and again, were not won a round of 12 million people, that includes kids and parents, and have everyone deported. we need to provide a long-term solution. i've described the fact i would be in support of a program that said that people who served in our military to be permanent residents of the united states. unlike the president, when i am president, i will do what i promised. i will put in place an immigration reform plan that solves this issue. >> that was republican presidential mitt romney speaking during an interview on univision last week. he got much louder applause than president obama did, juan gonzalez.
. >> these are pretty smart letters from some pretty smart young people. >> dear president obama, i think there should be some changes in the law with guns. it's a free country, but i recommend there needs to be a a... with guns, please don't let people own machine guns. >> can we stop using guns? i think if they are no guns on the street, no one could get hurt. >> stop gun violence, i am very sad about the children who lost their lives in connecticut so i thought i would write to you to stop gun violence. >> i have four brothers and sisters and i know i would not bear the thought of losing any of them. i may not be in politics my opinion it should be very hard for people to buy guns. the only thing they do is harm or kill and guns should be used in horrible event and others get hurt if they are not. >> sean: is that exploittation? are they using kids at the white house? >> sean, this administration is not serious about cutting violence in this country. let me tell you why. if they were, the last four years, the president's home city of chicago where drug gang cartels have taken over that city. there
the country that has given him so much. this has been his goal since he was a kid. when president obama stopped the deportation of eligible youth last year, he opened the door of opportunity for young people and he pointed the way forward by establishing important principles to guide immigration reform. immigrants must take personal responsibility for their actions. if they do this, we must provide a meaningful path forward to become members of american society. we have every right to protect our borders but we must balance this with the need to encourage the aspiration of america's immigrants. these are the principles of the american people threw their support behind in november. these are the principles that guide immigration reform in the coming months. with these principles in mind, we need reform builds upon the following policy pillars. a pathway to legal permanent residents in three and citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants must be at the core of reform. number two is legalization should be earned. it should be a process and not a punishment proof of english-lang
and those of other countries accordingly i also informed president obama of the sacrifices of the afghan people of immense sacrifices of the afghan people in the past 10 years both of who are the servicemen and of the afghan people, i'll be going back to afghanistan this evening to bring to the afghan people the news of afghanistan standing shoulder to shoulder with america as a sovereign independent country but in cooperation and in partnership. thank you mr. president for your hospitality. >> thank you mr. president. >> we've got two questions each i think from the u.s. and afghan press. we'll start with scott wilson of the "washington post." >> mr. president, does moving up the deadline for the transition to an afghan security role lead mean that you'll be winding down u.s. troops faster than you expected this year? and as specifically as possible, how many troops do you expect to leave in afghanistan beyond 2014 for the two mission youse outlined and would you consider leaving any troops in afghanistan beyond that date without an immunity agreement for their actions? and president ka
the messyness? help us understand that the law enforcement and the obama administration make and how to deal with this? >> i appreciate being here with angela and michael. this whole thing reminds me of the story. and i'm just a country lawyer from colorado. of the guy who prayed to win the lottery ticket. he wanted to win the lottery over and over again. he was constantly asking the lord, would you help me? would you help me? i've never asked you for very much. years went by. he never won the lottery. finally he's down on his knees. help me lord, i need this money so badly. finally a voice comes down. saul, why don't you meet me halfway and just buy a ticket? >> com and washington just buth ticket. they bought a ticket to this lottery. is this this kind of lottery that can be good or bad. if you don't like lotteries and i respect that some people don't like them at all, can this be a less lottery than it otherwise might be. think about the winners an losers because when you decide the lotfully a state or anywhere else, you are thinking about a world where you're maximizing public benefits o
the national debt, doubled it. we are the only country in the world that has a ceiling. it is a scam. i remember alan greenspan saying it might not be a good idea to pay off the national debt. that was around 2000. obama, where he should do, if you could have a $1 trillion corn, make 16 of them, pay off the national debt, and go on about your business. host: now to jesse, republican caller in texas. caller: i just wanted to touch on a few things. i am kind of wondering about the debt ceiling. where they came up with this situation. it just does not make any sense, why they want to fool with other people's money whenever folks in the white house don't have to worry about their money and the big money people don't have to worry about their money. they are going to get paid. but the little man -- i am disabled -- the little man has to worry whether they will get paid or not. and when did they come up with this electoral votes? it does not make sense to me. the republicans had it. then the electoral votes came up. host: one of the callers mentioned no other countries do this. here is an opi
in venezuela or, you know, in similar countries in latin america, crisis like this is because, you know, he's just a servant, an employee of an organization that if nobody step in, you know, nothing happened. do you expect during the new obama term a different approach with regard to the oar? we understand that everything we do from here toward caracas could be, could backfire, you know? but in the context of the oas where there's collective -- [inaudible] to preserve free speech, fundamental principles of separation of powers, given the situation in venezuela are you, are you expecting something different for these new four years, the term of the administration of president obama? >> see, this is the real reason why i called on jose miguel because he just articulated a question that i couldn't quite articulate but was precisely -- >> let me answer as bluntly and quickly as possible, and i'll invite my panelists to join in. first of all, the oas is a victim, and jose -- [inaudible] sosa is the beneficiary of the oas' growing irrelevance. the oas has declined in stature and importance, and j
compassion and human rights. obama care has turned into an issue. are we going to have a socialist country or not, not a health policy question? gay marriage is a social policy question. it's not just like can first cousins marry? it's fundamentally do you approve of homosexual conduct or not? what is your view of the bible? what is your view of tradition, human rights and equality? things that are hard to compromise on. and marijuana also behaves as drug policy does as a social policy issue, the social values issue to a large extent. president obama and the administration has said, we're going to deal with this as a legal issue. we're going to do what the law tells us. unfortunately, the law isn't all together clear on this there's going to be a lot of tussling over the law. drug policy doesn't settle it handily either partly because what we're talking about is making decisions in a vacuum without having information yet. how do you handle these very contentious social issues so you can reach a point where the country reaches a stable more or less sensible outcome without a 50 year culture
exactly in half. the reality is that the half of the country that is open devoting for obama, in fact, voted for him in november still is a strongly pro gun control constituency and the large extent democrats have been paralyze odd this issue by the fear of losing voters they've already lost. mostly blue collar white men, more rural voters. i think the key for the president is going to be to build a coalition that includes not only democrats, but those blue state republicans. that's the big difference between the politics of gun control and congress from the 199 0z until today. in the 1990s those blue state republicans felt pressure to support it. >> you could go through congress, or the president could go to issue an executive order. talk to me first about an executive order. obviously it would have to be around laws that already exist. what are his options potentially on the table? >> pretty limited. i think on executive order, they are going to have elements of executive action in the package that are coming out with this week, but they will acknowledge from the white house themsel
explained he has no role in venezuela or the countries in north america or the crisis like this is because, you know, he's just a servant and an employee of an organization that nothing happened. do you expect during the new obama term a different approach? we understand everything we do from here to washington could be , could backfire but in the context from the collective commitments to preserve the freedom of speech, fundamental principles of the separation of powers support, given the situation in venezuela, are you expecting something different for these new for years in the administration? >> he just articulated a question that i couldn't quite articulate that is precisely the one i was hoping. >> let me answer as blunt end quickly as a possible. the victim and the beneficiary of the growing irrelevance basically they've declined in stature and importance has sort of them less open to observation and criticism because it is becoming less and less relevant. i think it's difficult i honestly don't know how you turned the corner to make it -- i do think giving a much more -- to take th
private dealers to conduct background checks. i want to see president obama increasing federal funding for mental health treatment for all americanses who need it. i think these are perfectly reasonable steps to help this country begin to stem the tide of gun violence. there's been a petition on the white house website to have me deported on my views. here's what happened with one of the men behind the petition, alex jones. welcome to you. >> piers, thanks for having me. >> why do you want to deport me? >> we did it to bring recognition to the fact that we have all these foreigners. he's the only guy that had the guns. so we did it to point out this is global system and the mega banks that control the panic and brag they've taken over in bloomberg, reuters, you name it, brag they're going to get our guns as well. when they get our guns, they can have their world tyranny while the government buys 1.6 billion bullets, armored vehicles, predator drones, armed in u.s. skies, being used to arrest people in north dakota. the second amendment isn't there for duck hunting. it's there to protec
're living in a point right now here in the country where people with becoming more aware of the latino presence, and the importance steps that latinos are playing right now, especially in politics, you know, the latino vote very important in getting obama re-elected, and now, you know, the event that the republican party, it seems, that they really do need to change their thinking with latinos, and the issue important to us like immigration. i am very excited about, you know, the way the country is looking at latinos and to realize that, you know, we are an important part of the society. we need to work hard to create immigration reform to help those here to definitely move up, and to become an important power in politics and sectors of the society. very exciting times. >> host: speaking of the 2012 vote and latino vote, did you vote for president obama? are you a citizen today? >> guest: i am a citizen today, yes, aam. >> host: did you support president obama for re-elect? >> guest: i did, i did, i voted for him. >> host: can you tell us why? >> guest: i voted for him because, first o
with president obama after the shooting. the internet conspiracy theorists say that is not emili's sister at all, that is emilie herself. her father, robbie wrote, as a country we cannot let ourselves become derailed by the claims made by a number of people. this time is sacred for my family and for all those affected by this event. we cannot let these false claim s corrupt us. it's another for an associate professor at a university to do it. we were hoping to talk to the professor tonight. we asked him again yesterday if he would come on tonight. today he called us back and said he couldn't come on because he teaches a class on tuesday nights. we offered to send a satellite truck or pretape the interview. he declined. out in front reporting on this sandy hook conspiracy theorists. believe it or not, conspiracy theorists have been making outrageous false claims about that massacre as well. al alex, one of these conspiracy videos have gotten numerous hits on youtube and a lot of the cla claims are based on initial reporting, which we all know is often inaccurate. instead of seeing it as the fog o

[indiscernible] >> both the bidens and the obamas will participate on saturday. that will be here in the metro area. we have a number of cabinet officials that will be participating and we will be making announcements on that in the coming days. as you know, odds are you will know when it happens, but they will be doing something and that will be the entire family. >> just a follow-up on the fundraising question, if you have leftover funds, where do you plan to use those funds? presidential library? >> you know, i can honestly i don't know. there are rules that regulate what we can and can't do with those funds. i know some funds were used to do repairs on the national mall through the association that governance the national mall. that's a bridge we'll cross when we come to it. but there are a number of civic- minded things to do if we are lucky to have access funds when it is all said and done. >> cnn. how many law enforcement agencies and officers wil
obama after the shooting. the internet conspiracy theorists say that is not emilie's sister at all, it is emilie herself. in a statement earlier today emilie's father robbie told us, "as a country we cannot let us become derailed by the preposterous claims that are being made by a tiny number of people. this time is sacred for my family and for every family affected by this horrific event. we cannot let these false claims distract us from the things that matter most to all of us." now, it's one thing for ill-informed people to take to the internet to voice their parano paranoia. there are all these kinds of people. but it's another for an associate professor at a university to do it. again, we were hoping to talk to the professor tonight. we asked him again yesterday if he'd come on tonight. today he called us back and said he couldn't come on because he teaches a class on tuesday nights. we offered to send a satellite truck to him or to pretape the interview. he he declined. alex sides wald is a political report reporter for salon.com. he's been out in front on the reporting on th
towards the country's spending limit once again, folks. you know what that means. talking about time to raise the debt ceiling, right? president obama warned he will not enter into another game of brinkmanship as he referred to it over the debt sealing with republicans. >> the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a deadbeat nation. if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. investors around the world will ask if the united states of america is in fact a safe bet. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. martha: a lot of talk about the president's demeanor at that news conference yesterday. we'll get into that a little bit more coming up but for now does this really come down to an issue of raising the spending limit or defaulting on our credibility as the president has talked about. let's bring in stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on fox business network. so, stuart, you feel the way he is framing this is incorrect? >> ye
-- "1 obama has not done is not the problem. it is what pace -- it is what he has done that is causing the country's demise." guest: we leave that to others. it is a board to recognize we are independent journalists. we are making these judgments. putting them out there for people to make of them what they want. that goes for not just the obameter, but also fact checking. we are not in the business of analyzing that. what we want to do is provide people information about what is true and what is not, and then let them make judgments from there. host: let's hear from rick in cherokee, north carolina. a republican column. caller: my question is regarding mr. obama, just like what he is doing with our guns right now, trying to take them away. i signed two petitions prior to now, for national gun rights and the nra both. when hillary clinton was trying to go around, run around congress and was going to the u.n. to try to take them that way. what i am wondering about is why -- with what happened with the kids, we're all sorry about that, but the mother knew that the her sun was not right. t

obama said any confrontation with congress over the debt limit will hurt the american economy. >> shouldn't be surprising given all this talk that the american people think washington is hurting rather than helping the country at the moment. let's finish this debate. let's give our businesses and the world the certainty that our economy and reputation are still second to none. we pay our bills, we handle our business, and then we can move on because america has a lot to do. we've got to create more jobs we've got to boost the wages of those who have work. >> the president didn't mention another potential hit to the economy, higher payroll taxes that are shrinking millions of paychecks every year. jill schlessinger is editor at large for cbs' "money watch." what does this mean for the average person? people are starting to feel it, how much less money is in t in your pay sdmekcheck? >> when you look at the paycheck you'll have a bummed out reaction. $18 to $20 less if you make $50,000 or less it does matter. >> what exactly -- start us off with what is a pay
of he epsiode mass violence, we experience that across the country. year, 33rday of the americans are killed with guns. president obama will take the oath of office, and during those 0our years, some 4800 americans will be killed with guns. twice as many people as were killed in combat in the vietnam war. i have made it clear our has threesan coalition requiring legislation and four calling for executive action and i hope they will support all seven. first and most urgently -- we need the presidenet and congress congress to require background checks at gun sales and online. private sales account for 40% of gun sales nationally. there were more than 6 million gun sales that happened with no background checks. many of these are handguns, used in 90% of all firearms murders. across the united states, 80% or ofgun owners and 90% americans require gubackground checks for gun sales. we have laws on the books requiring background checks when dealers sell guns. it is time for the president and congress to make this the law of the land. 40% that the law does not apply to is a sham. and con
, every single day across our country. every day of the year, an average of 33 americans are murdered with guns. here is another way to think about what that means. one week from today, president obama will take the oath of office for his second term. unless we take action, during those four years, some 48,000 americans will be killed with guns. nearly twice as many people as were killed in combat during the entire vietnam war. when i have talked with the vice president, i have made it very clear that our bipartisan coalition of mayors is supporting seven measures. three that need legislation and for that require only executive action. we are hopeful the president and vice president will support all seven. i just wanted to touch on each of them briefly. first, most urgently, we need the president and congress together to require background checks for all gun sales, including private sales at gun shows and online. private sales now account for more than 40% of all gun sales nationally. which means that in 2012 alone, there were more than 6 million gun sales that happened with no projec
